you have raised the sun on this new day. You have shone a light on what was once ruled by unimaginable darkness. Just as you rolled away the stone from the Tomb of Jesus, help us to roll away the stone in our hearts that blocks us from feeling the beautiful rays of redemptive sunshine on our faces and souls. Help us to find the strength of Mary Magdalene and Mary mother of James… who braved the possibility of facing Jesus’ broken body all in an effort to honor and anoint him. Let us go forth, braving the brokenness of this world, seeking to see the Son in all who pass by, and anoint them with the love, grace, and mercy shown to all by Jesus Christ.
“Whoever you are, you are human. Wherever you are, you live in the world, which is just waiting for you to notice the holiness in it.”
